Custom Build a Jimmy Green Y shape bridle in two separate products - the single part and the V part - see below for two component products for each rope diameter
Custom Build a bridle to divide the load between two cleats - spliced and whipped to your own bespoke requirements by the Jimmy Green Rigging Team.
Build the Y shape bridle in two components and add each one to your cart as you go: Build 1 - Single part ~ Build 2 - V part
They will be joined together by the Rigging Team interlocking the thimbles in the connecting splices.
Jimmy Green Y Shaped Anchorplait Bridles:
- A Jimmy Green Y shaped bridle is based on the Anchorplait centre eye splice (with or without a thimble/chain hook).
- A Y shaped bridle consists of two interlocking parts:
- The single part from the outboard (anchor/mooring) end to the interlocking arrangement that creates the Y shape
- The interlocked V part that completes the Y shape
- The V part consists of
- a continuous line, centred around a hard thimble eye with a brummel locking tuck splice.
- two separate lines, with the hard thimble eye splices interlocked on to the hard eye splice of the single part
- two separate lines, with the hard thimble eye splices connected to the single part with a Colligo Bridle Plate
- The strength of the bridle is therefore not reliant on a Y Joining Splice i.e. splicing two separate ropes together
- The maximum angle of deployment must always be set up with caution but the centre eye splice is much less prone to failure at a wider than optimum angle than any joining splice between two separate ropes.
- It is not possible to successfully put a centre eye splice in a rope of 3 strand construction

Build a Y shape in two components and add each one to your cart as you go:
Build 1 - Single Part
Follow these steps, building a single line from the outboard end: Select Option 1 - Make your choice of finish on the mooring/anchoring end Select Option 2 - Pick your rope and enter the length of the single part. This will be the length from bearing edge to bearing edge of the thimbles Select Option 3 - Add an anti-chafe option, if required Select Option 4 - Add a compensator option, if required Select Option 5 - Select the interlocking thimble eye splice
Build 2 - V Part
Follow these steps, building a > from the top: Select Option 1 - Make your choice of finish to attach to your cleats onboard Select Option 2 - Pick your rope and enter the length of the first tail. This will be the length from bearing edge to bearing edge. Select Option 3 - Add an anti-chafe option, if required Select Option 4 - Add a compensator option, if required Select Option 5 - Make your choice for interlocking the single part to the the V part Select Option 6 - Pick the matching rope and enter the length of the second tail. This will be the length from bearing edge to bearing edge. Select Option 7 - Add a compensator option, if required Select Option 8 - Add an anti-chafe option, if required Select Option 9 - Make your choice of finish to attach to your cleats onboard
N.B. Ensure that you select matching rope for each tail and a matching finish for attaching to your cleats in order to create a symmetrical V
The mooring compensators will be fitted nearer the centre eye splice unless otherwise specified by email. Any anti chafe can then be suitably positioned to protect the tails as they pass through the fairleads and on to the cleats.
If for any reason you would prefer an asymmetrical configuration with non matching splicing/whipping on the two tails and/or one tail longer than the other, please order as above and send an email confirming your desired specification with a sketch if possible e.g If your fairleads are not positioned the same, port and starboard, you may prefer a loop splice on the end of one tail for a fixed length and a longer second tail with a whipping in order to adjust the bridle to take the load equally.
Once you have made a selection in all the drop down boxes available, the website will generate:
- a picture version of what you have chosen
- an overall length
- a price including VAT and any current applicable discount
N.B. The website will accept a length to 3 decimal points. However, this is not practicable for mooring and anchoring bridles For short strops and bridles, the Jimmy Green Rigging Team aim for a bearing edge to bearing edge measurement which is accurate to within + or - the diameter of the rope. However, all ropes stretch to some extent under load. Mooring and Anchoring ropes stretch more than most. Therefore, this degree of accuracy can't be guaranteed. Please allow for stretch under load when determining your finished length
Check the item is designed as you wish. You can alter any of the boxes and the website will update the picture and the price.

The finished length is measured from the bearing edge to the bearing edge = the inside face of a loop/thimble where e.g. a shackle pin would take the load and therefore NOT the overall outside length The splicing price includes the extra rope required to make the splice and meet the overall finished length.
The Jimmy Green Rigging Team undertake to check your rope meticulously during the production process to ensure that it is 100% First Quality The Jimmy Green Despatch Team make a second thorough quality inspection of each item, including a careful check that it matches your order, before packing it into your parcel Please take extra care when ordering because once a bespoke item has been started (cut) it can neither be cancelled or returned for a refund.

Y Shape Bridles for Multihulls:
Due to the broader beam, the angle of the lines to a central point from each hull will need to be wider, otherwise the meeting point will end up too far forward of the bow, resulting in too big a swinging arc and a subsequent loss of control. It is therefore advisable to consider separate hardware-connected lines to cope with the increased directional loads created at the meeting point:
- Two separate lines to create a V shape bridle connection
- Three separate lines to create a Y shape bridle connection
For a three way connection, it is possible to interconnect the two stainless steel thimble eye splices of the V part into the stainless thimble of the single part, but only if the single part is of an increased diameter - this is a bespoke solution which will need to be checked for each combination.
Mantus Marine manufacture a Bridle Plate solution.
Single lines can be 3 strand (twisted lay) construction: 3 Strand Strops rather than Anchorplait if preferred.
